I ended up getting pregnant. It was a very hard and tearful time in my life. Larry didn't want to marry me - but he did give me a promise ring at Christmas time. Then after a short time later he left and went back home to Oregon. I was devastated... he wanted me to get an abortion, but I wouldn't. I decided to go ahead and have my baby and keep him as a single Mom.
As my due date came up, we got in touch again and he was going to try and come for the delivery. Of course I had hope that we would be together and live happily ever after as a family. I had high hopes. Larry didn't make it for the delivery.
When Jason was 6 weeks old Larry's family sent me a plane ticket to come and see them in Oregon. It was my first plane ride at the age of 22.
We had a great time and I thought we were falling in love and it would work out. We left Jason with Grandma Barb and went on an overnight trip to the redwoods and the coast. It was fun and we decided that he would move back with me to Pocatello Idaho and we would try to become a family and work it out.
